"How civil servants are within those high levels of government? Yeah this is a concern. And of course, what we're trying to understand is that if Liz trust will do this differently. So we know that she's, you know, she doesn't believe in boring orthodox economics, that she wants to blow things up and she's not afraid of doing so. The problem, if you're a civil servant, do you speak your mind? Do you get listened to? And is there a concern down way down the road than actually the economics just don't make sense? So we were explained, for example, if you put a policy in place, for example, a fiscal policy, then you go to treasury and they say, well, this is possible, but these are your options to get it done. If you can't rely on that check and balance anymore, you wake up to three years from now and say, look, the bounce of payment is off the charts because of the structure of the economy, you still rely on the kindness of strangers, like Mark Carney had said. So you need that kind of check and balance to make sure that it's palatable for international investors. It's interesting how events happen and suddenly a civil servant whom we've never known the name of comes to the fore and suddenly done at household name. I think if Sue gray are now Tom scholar, so who was or who is Tom scholar, what was his role? Yeah, so one of the points that Allegra Stratton was saying is that even the top civil servant were not really supposed to know who they are because they put the motions in place, they're not usually at the front page of news. And this is why the UK has always worked this relationship between ministers between elected power and civil servants, where they are a political where they don't really take a stance on policy, is so precious to the running of this democracy. So he was a top civil servant, maybe there was animosity in between, but watch out to see if there was anything else like this happening again. Okay, that was francia taking us through the details of this week's in the city podcast.

"If you think back to that cash for honors investigation that took place under the Blair administration, we were left waiting for 18 months for the end of that particular investigation to happen. It does feel like we're going to enter a sort of period of paralysis from now on until that happens given that we haven't seen the full findings of the report yet and have only seen this kind of summary of evidence that she's got. And I think that does put the prime minister in quite a difficult position although I note when I listen to his statement yesterday. He did actually say he was going to be making some announcement in the coming days about how he intended to change his top team and I think he mentioned some of that when he addressed the 1922 committee yesterday talking about new boards, for example, policy boards, et cetera, et cetera, but it is really that personnel change that we're expecting at the top because writing about for months now. I was going to say it's noted almost every time this was sort of talk about this. There'll be some of our listeners hoping that we never talk about it again and there'll be others hoping that there is more and more scrutiny. And I think what's notable when we have spoken about this is that Allegra Stratton is the only person to have resigned the former spokesperson for the prime minister and an adviser and it's not the only person who designed is a woman and a woman who wasn't seemingly at any of these parties. So do you think those changes will mean changes in terms of people losing their jobs? I think that's certainly what's been mooted when we've talked to people behind the scenes. There's definitely been a suggestion that there would be people who would be moving away from their positions, whether that means that they get fired, whether that means that they get moved to other roles, that certainly been on the cards and I think it's going to be very difficult if we see a smattering of senior people with inside number ten possibly even the prime minister and the prime minister's wife himself. And is it just about fines? I was going to say, is it your understanding that both the prime minister and his wife could be questioned.

"Hello, I'm Emma Barnett and welcome to women's art from BBC Radio four. Now in the prime minister, is asked about the latest party said to have happened in the Downey street garden on the 20th of May 2020 at the height of lockdown one, he only has two words to say. Sue gray, aka, the woman tasked with investigating the slew of parties said to have happened within the corridors of power at the same time the rest of the country were living under the strictest restrictions imposed during peacetime. The prime minister is understood by the BBC to have attended this party along with his wife and around 30 or so other staffers after more than a hundred were invited, and is awaiting the findings of her inquiry. Well, today we're going to look at who Sue gray is the 64 year old top civil servant presently the second permanent secretary at the department for leveling up housing and communities headed by Michael gove. She has quite a job on her hands and is expected to report back within the next ten to 14 days or so. We're also going to ask who else should resign over these parties? Because so far, there has only been one resignation, and it was by a woman, Allegra Stratton, the former press secretary to the prime minister, as she was filmed in a mock press conference joking with number ten staff about holding Christmas parties. She didn't even attend one of these parties. It's understood. Now cast your mind back to May 2020. What were you doing? Or what weren't you doing? We've been thinking about that this morning on the program. We've looked back as to what you were telling us here on woman's are at the time. I wasn't here, but it's there as a matter of public record and we've obviously still got a lot of your messages as well. And just to say, of course, if you're thinking about May the 20th, 2020, that was, of course, the day where we were still having daily press conferences, ministers were going out and telling us not to break the rules, and then that same day, at 6 p.m., more than a hundred staff was invited to the Downing Street garden, bring their own alcohol because of course it has also been a beautiful run of weather..

"Because I don't suspect they'll be completely uniform in their thinking. Well, I think that's right. Some people like Jackie door price have voted against all COVID measures this year are very skeptical of some of the restrictions. I think some people have more targeted reasons, siobhan Bailey, one of the 2019 is has said on Twitter that working from home in masks have personal health and financial cost implications. And she said, in particular about COVID passports, which is generating this biggest revolt that it creates more problems than it solves by forcing people to carry papers. It's discriminatory potentially as the implication there. And she also says a very common thing from some of the rebels that there is no evidence pointing to the fact that many countries across Europe have had COVID passports for months. And they haven't seen any difference in the spread of COVID. So in terms of the I suppose the issue there is then, if they are sending that sort of message, what it then does on whether people in the public, not least, of course, building on a slew of stories about Downey street parties last Christmas actually think they have to do with their own personal behavior. Well, I think that's right and certainly some of the MPs who have vowed to rebel tomorrow have also been outspoken outspoken about the Downing Street party allegations. I think in particular of Anne Marie Morris, someone who last week said that Downing Street in the prime minister's staff had made a blatant error and she'd just come out and apologize for having clearly had a party, she said that in the wake of the Allegra Stratton video emerging, she has come out and said, you know, the impact on her constituents of the new restrictions is intolerable. I think there is a sense that certainly many conservatives feel emboldened to join the revolts tomorrow because they feel the government's credibility has been undermined by the many allegations now. I think there are about 8 parties claim to have taken place in November and December last year against the rules. And we expect some kind of insight on that by the end of the week with various reviews taking place. That's all talk again. Just on the number of women, so called rebels, tomorrow that we expect. It has always been a smaller group than the men in the conservatives, the sort of skeptics in this COVID time..

"And it's 6 30 a.m. and they were in London to make good morning on Caroline hepar So we're keeping an eye on Macron the news does seem to be darkening about just how serious it is how much it could cost in terms of the economic recovery and also on China and the evergreen that shares fell this morning significantly kaisers shares trade in Hong Kong have been suspended after both officially defaulted on dollar debt So let's look at the markets there before we get into some of the issues facing the UK especially Boris Johnson the all country world index is now down a tenth of 1% The topics dropping 8 tenths of 1% This morning nikkei two to 5 also down by 1% And European futures are significantly softer even though yesterday was quite flat Day U.S. stocks 50 futures down half of 1% S&P 500 even features manage a very small gain but the S&P 500 fell 7 tenths of 1% yesterday so that three day rebound in U.S. stocks did end on Thursday And I wonder whether this is going to be another very volatile Fridays We've seen in the last couple of weeks CBOE vol has jumped back towards 22 We do get the CPI number out at one 30 p.m. London time that will be crucial for markets ahead of the fed next week The yuan fixings also have been rather interesting The PBOC setting the week is reference rate But since 2018 according to estimates compiled by Bloomberg the offshore actually trading at 6 36 now is stronger two tenths of 1% but this of course is after the yuan hit the strongest level against the U.S. dollar since May 2018 So interesting another PBOC intervention Bitcoin a bit steadier this morning after it dropped a 6% overnight And we are $70 64 for WTI crude futures Okay those are the markets Let's go to a few of our top stories now And we start with the latest pressure facing Boris Johnson with MPs due to vote on the new coronavirus restrictions next Tuesday the FT says that at least 30 conservative MPs the time says 50 are threatening to reject the measures The package includes work from home guidance and mandatory vaccine passports for entry to crowded events Labor will support the new restrictions but the rebellion by back bench Tories is becoming corrosive for the government the latest YouGov poll for the times gives the party the worst poll rating in 11 months with two thirds of voters now questioning Johnson's integrity Meanwhile the City of London could become a ghost town again after firms started telling thousands of staff to work from home in response to the latest government guidance sources say that Deutsche Bank and Nat west group are significantly reducing the number of employees working in the office for Monday And one of the largest law firms here freshfield's brookhouse dengir is telling lawyers and staff to stay at home as well And I mentioned what's happening in the U.S. today The government will issue the consumer price index and there's a very good chance that it could rattle financial markets wary of inflation His Bloomberg's Vinny del giudice Bloomberg economic says November state are set to show the fastest pace of U.S. consumer price growth since 1982 When Paul Volcker was fighting the inflation dragon at the Federal Reserve almost 7% year over year from another angle the October to November hop food and energy could account for half the month over month gain but rising cost elsewhere will put more pressure on the fed to act The needle should ice Bloomberg daybreak Europe Okay a few of our top stories then and what we're expecting today But the heat is not dying down on Boris Johnson as anger swirls around government Christmas parties new COVID restrictions and now a fine over how building works on his home were funded The paymaster general is investigating now three events that took place last year during the pandemic restrictions and not even the birth of the Johnson's second baby yesterday could act as a distraction Well one of the people calling for Boris Johnson's resignation is anti MacDonald who is the labor MP for Middlesbrough You and pots and I spoke to him on Bloomberg Westminster yesterday We asked him whether he was happy that the Metropolitan Police decided not to investigate these allegations of parties No not at all I mean Allegra Stratton was asked a question about a party that we've told didn't exist It didn't happen but if spending did go ahead it was in accordance with the rules It can't be both And it's not just one party We're now discovering that there were a number of what the paymaster general of the dispatch box is just euphemistically caused gatherings So when we go to a party to a christening or a birthday party in Christmas party it isn't a party It's a gathering I mean this is just vaccination If people just turn to Dodge the column and Dodge the issue The back and forth was rough yesterday Didn't do enough Keir Starmer when it came to if that is your view to actually holding the prime minister account Well I think you did I think exposed him for the dishonest individual that he is And people will say well should have gone further last year's resignation Well I've just done that in the last hour I've asked the promises to do the right thing and resign Because as more information emerges and it's emerged since yesterday because of the number of parties that have taken place at number 10 Downing Street We know it's a place of business but really it's in these knowledge And for people to come to the House of Commons there I was told that it was okay It was investigation to view carried out And the pair must have generally done the self same thing issues hanging behind an inquiry going to be had by the head of the civil service We need to know which civil servants were attending these events or these gatherings because there shouldn't be anywhere near this And that's where the map If the police forces of our country are going to go around a resting people and our constituencies for breaking the rules they can done well investigate these issues too Everybody is equal under book And that applies even to the privileged bullingdon boys and the rest of the people inside the Westminster They have got to be subject to the same laws of our land And it can not be that the police is simply saying we're not in interest To complain and hurt to investigate because they simply can't sidestep this one if we're going to have faith in our institutions They've got to get on with that as look at our fear or favor And this is one of those such occasions Do you think it's realistic to call for the prime minister's resignation though He says he doesn't know about these parties I mean presumably gatherings happen in a large organization without the guy at the top being informed of it It was a number 10 Downing Street Many events not just the one And for him to satisfy himself I was informed that everything was okay I'm afraid simply won't wash He should be carrying out his own investigation Coming fully armed with the information rather than hiding behind some minion who tells him everything was all I permanent So don't you worry Everything's okay You've just got to be until that's what you've been told Not good enough So that was Andy McDonald's labor MP for middles were pretty strong on the government We'll have much more British politics on bib Westminster today So it was supposedly crime week according to the government this week Hardening rhetoric a new Law & Order bill that we have in the UK we're going to bring you a special program on prisons and sentencing with the Howard leagues Andrew Nielsen cape Fraser from women in prison and Peter Clarke senior fellow at the policy exchange catch it live 12 noon today Right let's get over Bloomberg's.

"But first. Britain's prime minister Boris Johnson announced new restrictions for England yesterday, an attempt to buy time while the omicron variant spreads. They include more masking requirements, proof of vaccination for big events and a recommendation to work from home. Ben Reilly Smith of the telegraph. Thank you prime minister. But reporters wondered whether the announcement was a distraction from other potentially damaging news for the government. You called this announcement forward to bounce headlines about the Christmas party. Is that true? A day earlier, a leaked video published by the broadcaster ITV showed the prime minister's staff joking about holding a lockdown defiant Christmas party last year. His fictional party was a business meet. And it was not socially distanced. Earlier that same day, a former foreign office employee recounted a shambolic mishandling of Britain's withdrawal from Afghanistan. Dysfunctional and chaotic. That is the damning verdict of a foreign office whistleblower on the way it handled the evacuation of people from Afghanistan after the embarrassments and the distractions just keep piling up. This morning, mister Johnson's Conservative Party was fined for failing to report money donated to freshen up his residence. Oh, and he's just had another baby, a daughter. This weekend will mark two years since the conservatives won a thumping 80 seat majority in the House of Commons, but one thing after another has ensured that the government struggles to deliver any of the big changes mister Johnson campaigned on. I think in number ten in Downing Street as prime minister, you can either have drama or delivery and the more drama you have and as we know shortage of it in the Boris Johnson years in office, the less delivery you're able to achieve. And Miguel voigt is a senior editor at The Economist. He came in with a rather ambitious project revolution in British government, sweeping away the more bureaucratic hurdles to reform that do dog aspects of Britain and public policymaking. But this permanent sickly excitement, if you like that the government seems to produce, has just made life very difficult for those trying to deliver change. Let's start with the two events that are the latest example of that drama. They haven't on the same day on Tuesday. Let's go through them one at a time. First, the claim about the evacuation from Afghanistan. Yes, this is a young man who worked as a junior adviser in the foreign office for a few years until September. He has submitted evidence to parliament's foreign affairs committee. And that states that the government's evacuation from Afghanistan this summer, obviously, the chaotic circumstances of having to get out very fast, but he says that this was very arbitrary. People weren't being put in any particular order of the seriousness and urgency with which they needed to be rescued that he emailed. Please for help that went unanswered. And he said, that was due to a lack of direction from the top from the former foreign secretary Dominique rob. There's also a personal angle to this, the whistleblower says that Boris Johnson personally ordered the air lift of dogs at an animal charity as eligible Afghans human Afghans were being left behind. The implication is that he did that at the behest of his wife, Boris Johnson's wife, who's got a strong interest in animal welfare. Mister Johnson denied that the animals were given priority. And then later that same day there was news that really seems to have gripped the country now about an alleged Christmas party at 10 Downing Street. What's the story there? This is a story that's emerged about a big gathering of some 40 or 50 people at the prime minister's office held last December. Remember that the UK was in some of its toughest lockdown measures at the time and more were looming than the broadcaster ITV published a video of stuff as who were rehearsing press briefing including someone who was then very close to the prime minister as his spokesperson, Allegra Stratton, discussing this party. There was a Downing Street Christmas party on Friday night. Do you recognize it? I went home. Hold on. Would you promise to contain how you Chris? What's the answer? I don't know. I didn't want a party whose work. No. There's chief of mine all right. It's a business meeting. This is recorded. Yesterday Boris Johnson got a real beating in the House of Commons at prime minister's questions from both sides of the house. I could understand how infuriating it must be to think that the people who have been setting the rules have not been following the rules. Misses fika, because I was also furious to see that clip. And this is speaking. He said he was very sorry for what was in the video and the whole tone in which the issue had been addressed. But I repeat mister speaker that I have been repeatedly assured since these allegations emerged that there was no party and that and that no COVID rules were broken and that is what mister Johnson said he'd ordered an investigation into what had happened. He would discipline those involves a pretty clear there's going to be a bit of a clear out there of those involved in this incident. And Allegra Stratton who had been his spokesperson giving that mock briefing in the video. She resigned very upset. I regret those remarks for the rest of my days. No, for my profound apologies to all of you at home for them. And how damaging do you think this latest pair of scandals will be for mister Johnson and his government? I think it looks very bad. The party attorney against him over this because it does look as if there was a culture around Boris Johnson, if not directly involving him, which said, well, that's a rules for the little people. If it comes to spinning out an event or a meeting into something that looks suspiciously like a party, we can get away with it because nobody's watching. I think there is much greater doubt than their wars in Conservative Party ranks that Boris Johnson is able to be the spearhead of the kind of reforms and changes in energy that he wanted to bring into government when he got elected. And that for Boris Johnson was the flip side of Brexit. He said, now we're out of the EU. We can go ahead and do lots of really interesting and distinctive things. The trouble is he can't. He staggers from one crisis to the next and somehow the interesting things get lost on the sidelines. Well, I suppose he has three years left in his term. I guess I should say, at most, do you think there is a chance he could turn things around? Will any of these scandals turn into to more opportunities do you think? Boris Johnson is one of the great and gifted opportunists of modern politics. The question is, can he turn that into grabbing opportunity and can he get the discipline and the self discipline back in his own camp also within his government? And frankly, within himself, to be the transformational prime minister that he promised to be. I think at the moment it feels a bit like an empty proposition. There is the Boris Johnson magic. It is a tainted stardust, but it does exist. He is very good at getting out of trouble. He does repeatedly climb.

"Four. Good morning and welcome to the program. Last night, the government announced that England was indeed moving to plan B COVID rules, which crudely summarized means don't go to the office, but you can't go to Christmas parties. And speaking of which and following on from our conversation yesterday, we're so many of you got in touch to share your reactions to that leaked video of the prime minister's former spokesperson Allegra Stratton practicing a mock press conference in which her colleagues joked about what her response might be if she was asked about Christmas parties at number ten during lockdown last December do tell me how that will affect your following of these rules. We were only talking about this yesterday and the rules came in last night, or rather were announced last night to come in this Monday. Let me know. But the other development yesterday was a resignation, not of a minister, not of a civil servant, but one Allegra Stratton very tearfully tendering her resignation and offering apologies outside of her London home. Is it significant that the only person to resign so far over the Downing Street parties is a woman, and a woman who didn't even attend them? My first guest today thinks this is another prime example of what she calls the pure sexism at the heart of British politics. But what about you? You can text me here at women's are on 8 four 8 four four texts will be charged your standard message rate on social media were at BBC women's or email list through our website.

"Hepburn so another Christmas of restrictions for England How many parties did the government and the conservatives hold last Christmas at the height of a lockdown the newspapers are on the hunt Politico says 7 in all so there's an issue perhaps around credibility but overall it's the health issue that I think is most important for investors The UK is also starting a trial about the effectiveness of anti viral COVID-19 drugs So I think that's interesting too Let me bring you a data check then before we get into our top stories around the new restrictions in England So the MSCI Asia Pacific is up four tenths of 1% large You've got Asian stocks higher just with the exception of Japan this morning In terms of futures we've been moving bouncing around so we have been flat but at the moment we are high three tenths of 1% for U.S. stocks 50 futures So perhaps the tone is changing as also I see now Dow Jones even features are just into the green S&P 500 even if it's still down The ring based on the spot index is stronger tenth of 1% because of the restrictions added by the prime minister yesterday you saw the pound sink It's been trading low for three weeks and it slumped yesterday The spot price at the moment is flat at one 32 zero three So that's a look at some of the key issues in terms of the markets and futures Let me take you to our top stories though because Boris Johnson has put this plan be into effect now So it tightens pandemic rules across England Bloomberg's Charles cape gives you the details From next week people in England will be advised to work from home and vaccine passports will be required in large venues masks or face coverings will also be required in more settings like cinemas from Friday Johnson said it is becoming clear that the omicron variant was growing faster than the delta variant It came at the end of a chaotic day for the prime minister in which he apologized in the House of Commons After a video emerged showing key aids joking about a Christmas party last year when such parties were banned Allegra Stratton one of the aids in the video offered her resignation in a tearful statement The new measures will be reviewed by early January at the latest in London Charles cable blue book daybreak Europe But of course Boris Johnson's plan B to curb the spread of omicron comes at a cost Bloomberg economics predicts the price tag could be as high as 2 billion pounds per month for the British economy The restrictions prompted business groups to call for government support the trades union Congress says that the furlough program should be revived and the CBI says firms would need help implementing COVID passports Meanwhile on a separate issue UK employers have increased starting salaries at a record pace in November That's according to a survey by the recruitment and employment confederation and KPMG They say that firms are being forced to boost compensation to tackle what they call an unsustainable shortage of workers starting salary inflation is at its highest since data collection began back in 1997 So those are some threads in the UK but apple is on the verge of reaching stock market a stock market value of $3 trillion This is less than four years after becoming a $1 trillion listing Shares rally to another record high take its valuation beyond the market cap of Germany's entire stock market That says the company won a delay to a court ordered change to its App Store marking a victory in its ongoing legal battle with the Fortnite maker Epic Games For more details on this apple story I want to bring in Alex Webb for our Bloomberg quick take team Alex this has been a humdinger hasn't it The back and forth and very fundamental to Apple in terms of how you pay for things how the App Store works So what has the reprieve been exactly Well essentially that this decision was being appealed or is being appealed by Apple and the initial move had been to say well you've got to follow the decision until that appeal is decided that has been fit on its head that essentially they don't have to change anything until the appeal has been resolved And the reason this is significant is not just of course about the App Store economy but it's about controller ever almost reality I'm trying to put things you want to be in this space as the next spring apple is getting the product Okay Alex I'm just having a little bit of difficulty hearing you on the line It is it is a very interesting moment isn't it So I suppose the next question really is why apple's share prices rallied quite so much I mean how significant invest is actually think this decision by the court of now is and what it has meant for the share price What's your view on that I'm sorry sorry I missed the last part of that I was just going to say the share price is rallied so much to how to invest at see all of this I mean it's quite interesting because it's clearly at a very high level right now bigger than the entire German economy as a German stock market It is actually above its 12 month target price Analysts had set the 12 month target price that essentially where they thought shares could land in size the next 12 months at a $169 is now at a 175 That doesn't mean that there aren't some unless you think go further yesterday we saw one in particular boost her target price to $200 They still see some headroom not necessarily the potential to go another $1 trillion clearly But don't forget there are more products coming in the next decade in the next four or 5 years not least in that augmented reality space and potentially also the automotive industry as well Okay fascinating Alex thank you so much for being with us That is blueberries Alex Webb there from our quick take team just giving us the latest in terms of the Apple court case with epic and what that has meant for us sawing share price at Apple Right let's get over to Bloomberg's Hannah George who has the

"To his back benches even who questioned him on the right of the plan B also contains things like vaccine passports. The right of his party in MP called will rag got up and said, we hear the prime minister is planning that. Does he know that this would be deeply unpopular with his own party and it came to parliament he wouldn't get the votes. That was the message basically. So he has managed to annoy just about all sides of parliament with his very carefully calculated words yesterday because he can not deceive the house on this, still saying that basically apologizing for something that he still won't confirm actually happened. And in the same Allegra Stratton, you know, has resigned over something that in her statement later in the day when she came out and gave her a very tearful apology, she still didn't say whether or not a party had on that happened. So what are you resigning for? It's quite extraordinary, isn't it? What are the polls saying? Can he survive this? So the polls yesterday were pretty damning. So in snap polls, only one in ten people thought that Boris Johnson was being honest about this. And this was a problem that was always going to come around for Boris Johnson, but it just depended how long. I think he's someone who we can fairly describe as having had a long-term socially distanced relationship with the truth. And if you go back into his career as a journalist, you know, he was fired from his very first job at the times because he made up quotes. That is the sacred crime in journalism. You do not make stuff up, and he was fired from that. He was fired from every other job he's basically done apart from mayor of London, and it obviously often comes down to the truth when he first got into parliament he was fired from the shadow cabinet by Michael Howard, because he lied about having an affair. And we know the cover up is often worse than the crime. And when it comes to the truth, it is like gravity, the more you try and fly away from it, the harder the impact will be when you do fall. And I think people were willing to put up with a lot with Boris Johnson, we knew about the messy personal life as much as he won't want to talk about it. We knew about mistakes that he'd made along the way, the cost of things when he was London mayor, things like the double decker bus that costs three times the price it should have done. All these things people were willing to put up with. And in some ways, in the last election, because they wanted to end Brexit and they just thought that he would be the person that delivered it even though he himself had used it as a political tool to get rid of his old enemy, David Cameron and march up half the power himself. But now it seems because we have had this universal collective experience rare in history where we've all lived through this period where many people have done their best to obey the rules have made huge sacrifices. Even just aside from those people who, and we're talking hundreds of thousands of people who haven't been able to say goodbye to loved ones and family members over the past two years because we're close to a 150,000 people dying in this country. Everyone, you, me, the people here working monocle. We have all at times done everything we can to obey the rules in the hope that it stops more people from dying. And it seems that the same for Downing Street to be celebrating, not with just one, but it seems multiple parties and the times this morning also reports that there was a party in the Conservative Party headquarters. After a year in which they had many people will say, failed at major points to stop this crisis from getting worse when you compare us to the rest of Europe when you compare us to equivalent nations that were island nations a particular strength that we had on many metrics the UK and the British government led by Boris Johnson failed. And so the fact that they still thought they should have a Christmas party, I think is going to go with a lot of people, and I think this is far from over. And I think the Met police last night said that they weren't going to investigate this. But I think the British public, given the anger you've seen, as a journalist sometimes you start to clock something as really, really taking off when your phone just starts blowing up by random people who never normally talk to you about news, asking questions about it. And I think this is really far from over, and it could see Boris Johnson potentially facing real consequences and possibly out of office. Thank you very much indeed. Boris.

"Picking over every single word and trying to make something out of it trying to say that there is skullduggery or wrongdoing when actually the one slip of a word and all of a sudden you're in a whole new territory. I think that there are cozy relationships between special advisers and journalists and that's how on the feeding the stories goes. But it does come back to how your principle wants to act. Theresa May didn't want that cozy relationship. She didn't want that feeding structure. And so it changed quite differently from my relationship with journalists, and the ones that David Cameron's team had before. And remember going to the U.S. and Trump, we chose hope from the BBC and journalists from the sun to ask questions of Trump from the UK side. And afterwards, he said to me, you call them your Friends, and I said, no, they're not our Friends. We live in a democracy, and they hold us to account. They didn't like that very much. No, imagine he didn't. And it's interesting you talk about the agendas, both of politicians and their advisers, but also of journalists and Michael when you're considering source information coming in your direction, presumably you're acutely aware that whoever's giving it to you may well have an agenda. Indeed, every time some source tells you something, you have to say, well, why are these eliminated? Why do they come to me? They're trying to get across. Can I believe them? And depending on whether they've got an interest in this coming out or whether it's just something that happened to know, that is all becomes part of the assessment and part of the calculation that you have to make as to how many and what strength of other sources you need. But this whole thing about friendships is a difficult one. I mean, Allegra Stratton used to be my producer on news night. I was on friendly terms with her. I can't say she's a close friend. These days, Robbie Gibb was the same. He was a colleague of mine. He used to work for Theresa May and Downing Street. He was to that he worked with me in the BBC. So these relationships are very, very difficult. My own style is to sort of try and keep a certain distance as much as I can. But there have been relationships in the past. I remember in the Blair years, both Alastair Campbell and Peter mandelson were very close to certain journalists, and it always seemed to be those journalists that came out with the stories that were favorable to the Blair government. And I was very uncomfortable about that. And I think a lot of our colleagues are uncomfortable about that that certain journalists can be used as mouthpieces for certain politicians..

"Yes, this week it's the story of two massive scoops and now a resignation. It was pipa creer from the Daily Mirror who first reported there had been a Christmas party at Downing Street last December over a week later, Paul bran from ITV news released a video he'd obtained showing Downing Street staff last December joking about a party at number ten during lockdown. The party and the video dominated prime minister's questions this week and far away from Westminster and deck are making jokes about it. Who was at the party as a hashtag on Twitter and interest is surging. So we're going to learn how these scoops happened. Pippa, and Paul, welcome to the media show. I Roz. Hi. Well, as of course, you know, Allegra strattons now resigned as an adviser to the prime minister. This is what she's had to say outside her house this afternoon. More remarks seemed to make light of the rules. Brawls that people were doing everything to obey. That was never my intention. I regret those remarks for the rest of my days. Now for my profound apologies to all of you at home for them. Paul, you released the story yesterday evening this resignations the result of it did you imagine it would have such an immediate impact? We knew it was going to be an important story Ross because of course there have been talk of this Downing Street party ever since pippa broke the story. But what I hadn't quite anticipated was the extraordinary reaction that there has been from the public. I think this is what we call in the trade cut through, somewhat patronizing the at times, but I think the public really did grab hold of this story and feel this story in their bones because they have made huge sacrifices over the past two years. We all have and yet it appeared that those sacrifices were not being made in number ten. While Paul and pippa are going to be with us through the half hour and we want to examine what this story reveals about the relationship between the government and the lobby to help us do that will be Katy Perry, director of communications to Theresa May, when she was prime minister, Michael crick, political correspondent with male plus and kitty Donaldson, the UK political editor for Bloomberg news, and will hear from all of them in a minute..
